Danville, VA - For several Danville couples, Friday was certainly a day to remember. That's because they got married for free.
Ben David Jewelers has offered free weddings for couples for eight years. All you have to do is get a marriage certificate and sign up. Then they provide a ceremony with a photographer, a wedding cake, snacks, champagne, and flowers.
They had weddings and vow renewals every half hour. Many couples say they enjoy this service because it doesn't cost them anything and they say it is more special than just going to the courthouse.
"We just enjoy doing it in our store. It's a way we can share with the community and share with those special couples that union of love," said Stephanie Mitchen, Operations Sales Manager.
One lucky couple even won a honeymoon package which included a one night stay at a hotel and spa services.
